Ray Niro Offers $5,000 Bounty For Information On My Identity

,----[ Quote ]
| Yes, Ray Niro has decided to offer $5,000 to find out who I am. According to
| the article, he wants to know "who is saying all those nasty things" about
| him. I don't think that's fair. I may have disparaged the validity of Acacia
| U.S. Patent 5,253,341, and I may have claimed that Niro was asserting
| the '341 patent against me just to shut me up, as he did to Greg Aharonian so
| many years ago (something that the article's author also implies), but that's
| not nasty. Is it?
